The latest episode of The Cycling Podcast Féminin comes from Harrogate, where Saturday’s women’s road race was won with an astonishing performance by Annemiek van Vleuten.

Richard Moore and Rose Manley report from Yorkshire and assess Van Vleuten’s victory and the manner in which it was achieved, while Orla Chennaoui files a ‘dispatch from the desert,’ since she is covering the world athletics championships in Doha.

There are interviews with Lizzy Banks, Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig, Alice Barnes, Leah Thomas, Chloe Dygert Owen and defending champion and silver medalist this time Anna van der Breggen.

The Cycling Podcast Féminin is supported by Rapha, Skoda and Science in Sport.

This episode is sponsored by Heist.

Heist is on a mission to take away the frustration every woman has with their underwear. They’ve already revolutionized tights and shapewear. And there is more coming in 2020.

Heist has an in-house team of material scientists and garment innovators, known as Lab12, creating its products.

This team, Lab12, applies the same level of physiological research and technological innovation to underwear that has previously only been used in the sportswear category.

Lab12, led by Fiona Fairhurst, the inventor of the revolutionary, multi-gold-medal-winning Fastskin swimsuit, has applied technology never before used in underwear to create shapewear that moves with the body, rather than against it.
